We are now able to offer video consultations. You can speak to a clinician via webcam rather than attending surgery. We hope this will be useful in the current climate.

Stay home, protect the NHS, save lives.

Please note Park Green Surgery is NOT closed, due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus we are taking measures in line with guidance shared by NHS England and Public Health authorities to minimise risks associated with the virus.  In order to protect our patients and staff and we are asking our patients to support us with this.

As an interim measure after consultation with Wakefield CCG we have taken the decision to close Southmoor Surgery, branch site, until further notice. All patients can contact Park Green Surgery on 01977 642251.

 

What does this mean for you?

If you have a new continuous cough, and / or a temperature of 37.8 or higher please stay at home for 7 days – for further information www.nhs.uk/coronavirus or click here (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-people-with-confirmed-or-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection)

 

For the latest Corona Virus advice please visit www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.

 

During this time if you have any other medical needs please contact the surgery by telephone and your health needs will be assessed – this may lead to a face to face consultation if needed. 

 

Please DO NOT phone the surgery for advice about whether your child should attend school or whether you should go to work. You need to contact the school or your Employer directly. As you can appreciate it is an extremely busy time for GP staff, who need to speak to patients who are ill. Thank you for your continued patience and support in these difficult times.

 

Do you need non-medical support during the current COVID-19 Outbreak?

Live Well Wakefield is a social prescribing service that links adult 18+, registered with a Wakefield GP – like ours, with non-medical support in the local area.

During the current COVID-19 outbreak they’re still accepting social prescribing referrals and are also encouraging referrals from our vulnerable patients who are self-isolating and have no support to access shopping, medication delivery and/or befriending support. They can also support you with information on up to date safety advice and help you to access additional support services as appropriate during this time.

 Information on their standard service and what ‘Social Prescribing’ is, can be found on their website: https://www.livewellwakefield.nhs.uk/ (click on the topic boxes)

At present Live Well Wakefield is unable to offer face to face appointments but all assessments will be completed over phone/email or with a family member if appropriate to ensure they can continue to support all.

To refer yourself – complete their online form https://www.livewellwakefield.nhs.uk/referrals/new , call them on 01924 255363 and follow instructions on the answer machine message, or message them on Facebook @LiveWellWakefield

 

How GP practices in Wakefield will be working to tackle coronavirus

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has put an increased demand on primary care services in Wakefield.

Map of Wakefield district

GPs are working hard across the Wakefield district.

As a result of this, and in line with last week’s government’s guidelines about staying at home to stop the spread of the virus, patients should not attend their GP surgery without an appointment and should make contact by telephone – but only when necessary.

If you do have a confirmed face-to-face appointment with a clinician, you may be asked to see them at a neighbouring GP practice to the one you would usually attend.

This is because some practices will be closed or reorganising themselves to effectively cope with increased demand and suspected coronavirus (COVID-19) patients.

These changes will begin to take effect from Tuesday 31 March.

The location at which you will be seen will always be communicated to you by your clinical team who you will always be able to contact via your usual GP practice number.

As you will be able to appreciate, this is an unprecedented time so your cooperation, understanding and patience are greatly appreciated. Please continue to keep up to date with the latest advice around coronavirus on the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

 

Rescue pack requests – Covid-19

We have been made aware of some inaccurate information circulating regarding special ‘rescue packs’ for patients with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We are not currently changing our usual advice about emergency supplies of antibiotics and steroids. The main reason for this is that we understand neither would help in the early stages of a COVID-19 (coronavirus) infection and people might delay seeking advice if they became increasingly short of breath.

Please do not contact your GP practice for a rescue pack. You should continue to manage your condition in the usual way and if you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19, go to 111.nhs.uk/covid-19 before doing anything else.

We are getting increased demand for inhalers from people who have not had inhalers for several years. This is not recommended and inhalers should only be restarted if your symptoms have returned. Please only request inhalers if you are currently using them and please visit Asthma UK www.asthma.org.uk or British Lung Foundation www.blf.org.uk for further information.

We would also like to reassure you that the large majority of people, even with underlying risk factors, will have a mild to moderate illness and recover well. Information on COVID-19 can be found online at nhs.uk/coronavirus

 

Welcome to Park Green Surgery

A warm welcome to the website of Park Green Surgery (formerly Dr Singh & Partners).  We hope you enjoy having a look around and familiarising yourself with some of the on-line facilities.

Our reception staff are here to help you get the right service for your needs. Please don’t be offended if they ask what the problem is when you call to make an appointment. The receptionist might suggest you see an alternative health care professional: Nurse, Opticians, Pharmacist, Family Services, Support Groups, etc.

As from 1st June 2019 the practice will no longer accept repeat prescription requests by telephone.

You can request your prescription in one of the following ways ;

  • Counterfoil (the back of your prescription) indicating which medication you require by ticking the box at the side of the medication and placing in the prescription box at the surgery,
  • In writing,
  • Online via SystmOne online or in person at the surgery.

Please note we will accept telephone requests for housebound patients and those with registered carers only.

Online Consultations

We’ve introduced an online consultation service so you don’t always need to come into the practice to get our medical expertise. Why not save time and try our new online service. You can input your symptoms online and will receive a response from the practice – usually that day, if a request is received within the Online Consultation daily request times. You will also have access to reliable and trustworthy self-help generic information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that may help you to avoid an appointment altogether. You can also use the system to request test results, sick notes, referral letters and medical reports.

Online Consultation – It’s Simple, Safe and Personal. Click on the banner at the top of the page.
